Data visualization : Make numbers speak

Formation Online

Know how to extract stories from numbers.

We can make the numbers say what we want … hence the importance of knowing what we want to say! This storytelling workshop calls for two mindsets : scientific and creative. With hands-on training, participants will be introduced to data visualization techniques and the pitfalls of using certain graphs. In no time, they will grasp all the power of well-chosen and well-communicated data. They will benefit from training tools that are easy to reuse within their remote teams.

What is data visualization?

Data visualization is knowing how to represent data graphically, to make it understandable at a glance. Sometimes referred to as dataviz, data visualization provides a simple portrait of a complex situation using user-friendly graphical elements.

Why Choose Online Training

Distance is never an obstacle to learning creativity. Each training course takes into account the reality of distance learning: the workshop masters divide the cohort into small teams to work in depth. Opt for the flexibility of our online trainings, where the screen is not an obstacle to human sensitivity.
